If you are ever in Somerset and find yourself in need of a picturesque, historical pub that serves good food and some real ales, you might try the Lowtrow Cross Inn. It doesn’t quite date to Shakespeare’s time, but the name “Lowtrow” does have an association with the Battle of Agincourt which, of course, is central to Henry V. (The pub’s website gives all the details on that.)


It’s in the village of Upton, about 15 miles west of Taunton, and on the edge of Exmoor. In addition, the Inn is now offering Bed and Breakfast at £65 per night (bookings can be made through the Lowtrow link above). It’s a great place to stay.
